PREFACE. 



Over forty years ago the compiler, for his own amusement 
and with a desire to learn from whence the American family 
of Talcotts came, collected most of the materials for the earlier 
part of this pedigree, and from time to time, as occasion offered, 
has been adding to the same ; until it embraces almost all of 
the descendants from the first known ancestor, and has become 
a record of interest to all of the name now living, and is worthy 
of preservation. 

The arrangement of names is such as to bring together the 
descendants through each branch separately, and not to bring 
down the whole by generations, as is most frequently done. 
This makes it very easy to trace one of the present generation 
back to the original ancestor. For this reason the dates of 
births, marriages and deaths appear first with the names as 
children, and then as heads of families, and the numbers 
attached to the names indicate the children first, and then the 
heads of families. 

To make the descent more clear, charts of several branches 
of the family have been introduced. 

The biographical sketches are all authentic, and will be 
found of interest to the immediate descendants of the one 
written about, if not to the other members of the family. 
Those of the descendants of William Talcott, who reside in 
Illinois, were furnished by the Hon. Wait Talcottj of Rockton, 
111., and that of T. M. K. Talcott, of Kichmond, Virginia, by 
himself ; the remainder by the compiler. 

The Talcott family is scattered throughout the entire States, 
and its members differ widely in religion, politics and occupa- 
tions, and good and true men of the name were found on both 
sides during the war of the rebellion. 

It is almost impossible to compile a record of this kind that 
shall be free from errors, but it is hoped that the time and care 



bestowed upon this, will render it less liable to criticism on 
this account than works of a similar character. 

There has been much controversy among the descendants as 
to the correct way of spelling the name. In the body of the 
will of the first known ancestor, it is spelt " Taylcot " and 
" Talcoat ; " it is signed " Taylcot." In the will of his wife it 
is written " Talcoat." In the will of his son John, of Brain- 
tree, it is written " Tailecot." In that of John, of Hartford, 
son of the latter, it is written and is signed " Tallcott," while 
Dorothy, his wife, signed hers "Talcott." John, the eldest 
son, made no will, but Samuel, his brother, who was educated 
at Harvard College, did, and signed his name " Talcott." Gov. 
Joseph, son of John, and Benjamin, son of Samuel, signed 
theirs " Talcott." On the English records in the Heralds Col- 
lege, London, the name is spelt " Talcot," as far back as 1668, 
and in 1634, " Talcott." 

The name is derived from the Welch " tal," high, and '* cott, 
cot, cote," Anglo Saxon, meaning cottage, that is, a high cot- 
tage or a cottage on a high place, i, ^., cottage on the hill ; or 
it may have come from the Saxon " toll," a grove, and " cott," 
cottage in the grove. 

The proximate date of the assumption of family names was 
about the year 1000, when they were first taken in Normandy, 
and gradually extended into England, Scotland and Ireland. 
They were, however, occasionally hereditary among the Anglo- 
Saxons, anterior to the Norman conquest, as will be found 
by examining the " Doomsday Book."

NOTE. 

At a " Lady Washington " tea party, given at Hartford, 
Conn., in April, 1875, among other relics exhibited were many

who was the son of the Hon. Samuel A. Talcott, late Attorney- 
General, of the State of New York, and a descendant of Gov. 
Joseph Talcott, of Connecticut. A catalogue of which is here 
given, as it will probably be interesting to all bearing the

wood.

TALCOTTS IN ENGLAND. 



The family of ^^ Talcot " was originally of Warwickshire, 
England. John, a descendant from the Warwickshire family, 
was living in Colchester, Essex county, previous to 1568. In 
vol. 1137, page 148, of the Harlean Manuscripts, preserved in 
the British Museum, containing the Herald's visitatiop of 
Essex county in 1558, are found the arms and pedigree of the 
Talcots. In a subsequent visitation in 1634, found in vol. 
1634 called " visitations of Essex county," the arms and pedi- 
gree are the same, but the name is spelt " Talcott." ^ 

The arms are : " Ar. on a pale sa, tliree roses of the field. 
Crest. A demi-GriflSn erased. Ar. gorged with a collar sa, 
charged with three roses of the first." Motto ^ Virtus sola 
nobilitas. 

John Talcott possessed real estate in Colchester and adja- 
cent towns, which, with his personal property, he bequeathed, 
at his death, to his children and grandchildren. He was twice 
married, and had two sons by the first wife, John and Kobert, 
and also a daughter. John settled in Braintree, about four- 
teen miles from Colchester, and died there in 1604, before 
his father, leaving a family of childreu, all minors, the eldest 
of whom was John, who came to New England. Robert 
became an alderman and Justice of the Peace in Colchester. 
By his second wife he had two sons, Thomas and John, 
and four daughters. Thomas was Hector of the churches 
of St. Mary and Mile End, in Colchester, and chaplam to the 
Earl Marshall. John, living at the same period with his haK- 
brother John, went to Spain, and was a merchant in Madrid. 
From John, of Braintree, the Talcotts in America are descended. 
The five daughters of John of Colchester married and lived 
in or near Colchester.

TALCOTT FAMILY IN AMERICA. 



11. 

John, son of (2) John Talcott and Anne Skinner, his 

wife, was bom in Braintree, Essex Co., England, married 
Dorothy, the daughter of (probably) Mark Mott, Esq., and 
Francis Gutter, of Braintree, Essex Co., England, and had in 
England 

34 Mary, m. Rev. John Russell, June 28, 1649 ; d. aboat 1655. 

35 John, ra. 1st Helena Wakeman, Oct. 29, 1650 ; 2d Mary Cook, 

Nov. 9, 1676 ; d. July 23, 1688. 

36 Samuel, b. 1635, in New England, m. Hannah Holyoke, Nov. 

17, 1661 ; 2d Mary , Aug. 6, 1679. He d. Nov. 10. 

1691. 

John Talcott was left a minor by the death of his father in 
1604, and was an only son. The 1st wife of Bagot Eggleston, 
who came first to Dorchester in 1630, and thence to Windsor, 
was a Mary Talcott, whom he married in England before he 
came to America. 

No other family of the name ever emigrated to this country, 
and all the Talcotts here are descendants of the above-named 
John, who settled in Hartford, Ct. He first came to Boston, 
Mass., with others of the Kev. Mr. Hooker's Comf^any in the 
ship Lion, which sailed from England June 22, 1632, and arrived 
there on Sunday, Sept. 16, 1632. The following are the 
names of some of the passengers : 

William Wads worth, Jonathan Wade, 



John Talcott, 
Joseph Roberts, 
John Cogsall, 
John Watson, 
Robert Shelly, 
William Heath, 
Richard Allis, 
Thomas Uskett, 
Isaac Murrill, 
John Wichfield, 



Robert Bartlett, 
John Browne, 
John Churchman, 
Tobie Wniet, 
William Curtis, 
NicFs aark, 
Daniel Brewer, 
Jo. Benjamin,

James Olmstedd, 
William Lewis, 
Zeth Graunt, 
Nathaniel Richards. 
Edward Collraer, 
Edward Holmer, 
Jo. Zotman, 
Charles Glover. 



23 

These persons names were taken from an old book of 
Records of Emigrants found in Westminster Hall, England. 
The Ship Lion was Commanded by Capt. Mason, and had 123 
passengers (amongst whom were 50 children) and they all 
arrived in good health after a passage of twelve weeks from 
England. 

This company first settled in Newtown, now Cambridge, 
near Boston. John Talcott was admitted a freeman by the 
General Court at Boston, November 6, 1632 ; was one of the 
Representatives in the General Court together with Mr. Good- 
win and Mr. Spencer, for Newtown, May 14, 1634. 

At a general meeting of the whole town of Newtown, held 
February 4, 1634, he, and Ilaynes, Bradstreet, and four oth- 
ers, were chosen Select men of Newtown to do the whole busi- 
ness of the town. 

He was the fifth greatest proprietor of houses and lands in 
the town, out of eighty enumerated in the registry of 1634, 
" of those only who were considered townsmen.''^ 

He owned four houses in the " west end," and maintained 
and kept in repair, thirty-six rods of public fence. 

These are his houses and lands as recorded in the " Newtown 
Register book, October 5, 1635." In the "West End" his 
dwelling, out-houses, etc., with 3| acres of land. In " Old- 
fields," 3f acres of land in one piece, and 2 acres in another. 
In " The Neck," 32 acres in one piece, and 45 in another. 
In the " Ox Marsh," 2^ acres. In the " Large Marsh," 7^ 
acres. In the " Great Marsh," 27^ acres in one piece, and 50 
acres in another. And in the " Windmill Marsh," 5 acres. 

The Rev. Mr. Hooker joined his people in Newtown, and 
they, becoming dissatisfied with their location, after repeated 
efforts and much difficulty, obtained permission from the Gen- 
eral Court to remove to the Connecticut River. John Talcott 
thereupon sold all his possessions in Newtown to Nicholas Dan- 
forth. May 1, 1636, and with about one hundred othei^s left 
Newtown in June of that year (having first sent the carpenter' 
Nicholas Clark, over the previous year to build him a house, 
which stood on the ground where the North Church [late Dr. 
Bushnell's] now stands, and was the first house built in Hart- 



24 

ford), led by the Rev. Mr. Hooker, and went on foot, through 
the wilderness, to the Connecticut River, where they founded 
the present city of Hartford ; here he took an active part in 
the affairs of the town, was a member of the General Court 
for many years, and was styled " The Worshipful Mr. John 
Talcott ;" he was one of the committee appointed May 1, 
1637, to take into consideration the propriety of a war with 
the Pequot Indians, and upon whose recommendation a war 
was accordingly declared. He was one of the Chief Magis- 
trates of the Colony until his death, which occurred at his 
Mansion at the head of Main Street, in Hartford, in March, 
1660. He left by his will his property to his wife and two 
sons (his daughter having previously died), and grandcliildren. 
He was l)uried in Hartford, Conn., and his name is inscribed 
upon the monument erected by the citizens of that place to 
perpetuate the memory of the founders of the Colony of Con- 
necticut. 

Referring to the death of John Talcott, the Rev. John 
Davenport, of New Haven, writes to Governor John Win- 
throp, Jr., under date of March 29, 1660, " I am sorry for 
your loss of Mr. Talcott, whose decease I heard of, but not 
how his diseases were found incurable, 'till I received your let- 
ter of the 27th, whereby it is most clear to me that no art of 
man could cure him." 

Note. — " May 17, 1660, Mr. Bray Rossester, for and in con- 
sideration of his pains in coming to and attending Mr. Tal- 
cott in his sickness, was allowed £5, and paid out of the 
Treasury." 

Dorothy Mott, widow of the worshipful Mr. John 
Talcott, died in Hartford, Ct., February, 1670. She is sup- 
posed to have been the daughter of Mark, son of Thomas and 
Alice (Mead) Mott, of Braintree, Essex Co., England, who 
was born April 25, 1549, married Frances Gutter, and had 

Frances, m. Frances Forward, of Hertford, England. 

Thomas, m. dau. of John Bend. 

Adrian, bap. March 29, 1578; m. Ist Jane Wade; 2d Catharine 

Kempe, Jan. 1, 1604.

John, m. Alice Harrington. 

James. 

Dorothy, m. John Talcott. 

Sarah, m. 1st Robt. Tenborough, 1614 ; 2d Sir John Henley. 

Dorcas. 

Mark Mott was the ultimate heir of his father Thomas, who 
was the owner of Sheme Hall, Lexenden hundreds, and other 
real estate in 1599. 

Frances, wife of Mark Mott, died in Braintree, and was 
buried Feb. 23, 1615. 

Mark Mott died in Braintree, and was buried Dec. 14, 
1637. 

Dorothy Mott, widow of the Worshipful John Talcott, 
made her will in Hartford, Ct., Sept. 22, 1669, which follows 
below. 

As there is no mention made in either the will of John Tal- 
cott, or that of his wife, of property possessed by them in Eng- 
land, it is presumed that they disposed of it all before they 
came to this country, with the exception of the house they 
lived in in Braintree, which was sold by Mr. Mott, brother of 
Dorothy, in the year 1644, by order of her husband.

Lieut.-CoL John Talcott died in Hartford July 23, 1688. 
He came over from England with his parents and sister Mary 
(who afterwards married the Rev. John Russell) in the ship 
Lyon, in 1632. He resided in Hartford ; was made an ensign 
in 1650, a captain in 1660 ; was elected a deputy, or assistant 
magistrate, of the Colony of Connecticut, before it was joined 







33 

# 
to New Haven, May 18, 1654, and Treasurer to succeed his 

father, May 17, 1660, which office he held till 1676. He was 
one of the patentees named in the Charter of Charles the First, ^ ^ 
granted to Connecticut April 20, 1662 ; which document was 
entrusted to Wyllis, Talcott and AHyn for safe-keeping. In 
1676, on the breaking out of the Philip war, he resigned the 
office of treasurer and was appointed to the command of the 
army with the rank of major, and in June of that year went 
into the field at the head of the " standing army " of Connecticut, 
accompanied by 200 Mohigan and " Pequot Indians." In the 
various battles with the Indians in which he was engaged, he 
was always victorious, and obtained great renown as an " Indian 
fighter." Many of his official papers are on record in the Sec- 
retary of State's office at Hartford, and are interesting rehcs of 
the memorable Philip war. Early in the war he was promoted 
to the rank of Lieut.-Colonel. In March 1662 the General 
Court granted to him and to John Allyn 600 acres of upland 
and 100 acres of meadow land, to be laid out in Hammonaset 
(Killingsworth). 

Lt.- Col. Talcott died intestate, his property amounting to 
£2232 3^. 6^?., was claimed by his oldest surviving son. Gover- 
nor Joseph Talcott, who petitioned the General Court May 
15, 1691, to give him possession thereof, which he claimed by 
right of primogeniture. 

Gov. Joseph, the eldest of his two surviving sons, settled in 
Hartford and became the head of the family in that city, and 
Hezekla^h, the other son removed to Durham, Ct., and held a 
prominent position in that town, they were children by different 
wives. 

The old account book belonging to Lt.-Col. Talcott, in 
which he entered a memorandum fif early events connected 
with his father's family, went into the hands of his son-in-law, 
Capt. Joseph Wadsworth, and was used by him for the same 
purpose. 

It was the custom in those days for each head of a family to 

keep a parchment covered account book and besides the 

accounts kept in it, all important events that occurred, births, 

noLarriages and deaths of parents and children, state of the 
5 



. 34 

weather, crops, etc., were entered in it. In this book of Lt.-Col. 
Talcott's were the following memoranda written by himself. 

" My Oncle, Mr. Mott, sold my honored father his house 
(i. e. my honored father's house) that he lived in in Braintry, 
old England, per order in the year 1644, my father then living 
in his house in Hartford." (Mr. Mott was the brother of the 
first John Talcott's wife, Dorothy Mott.) 

" The kitchen that now stands on the north side of the house 
that I live in, that was the first house that my father built in Hart- 
ford, in Connecticutt Colony, and was done by Nicholas Clark 
the first winter that any Englishmen rought or built in Hart- 
ford, which was in the year 1635. My father and mother and 
his family came to Hartford in the year 1636, and lived first in 
said Kitchen, which was first on the west side of the chimney. 

The great bam was built in the year 1636, and underpined 
in the year 1637, and was the first barn that was raised in this 
colony. 

The east end of this house that we live in, and was my father 
Talcott's, deceased, was built with the porch that is, in the 
year 1638, and the chimneys were built in 1638. 

The cowhouse on the north side of the cow yard, now part 
improved for a com house, was finished and built in the year 
1640. 

The house and barn that was in partnership between my 
father and my Oncle Wadsworth, at Farmington, was finished 
in the year 1642. 

The hay bam standing on the north end of the great barn 
next Capt. AUyn's garden, was built in the year 1644. 

The west end of that house we live in, which was belonging 
to my Honoured Deceased Father Talcott, was built in the 
year 1645. • 

The prison house or common Gaol for the Colony, was built 
in Hartford in the year 1641. 

The meeting house or first church built in Hartford, was in 
the year 1638. 

The Pequot war was in the year 1637, at the Englishe's 
almost first coining to Connecticutt."

He was the first Governor of Connecticut, born within its 
limits, and occupied the chair, from 1724 to Oct. 11, 1741, a 
period of 17 years, longer than any who succeeded him and 
longer than any of his predecessors, except Gov. Winthrop. 
His funeral expenses, amounting to £69 12^. 5d,, were ordered 
paid out of the Colonial Treasury. The second son of the 
Governor, Joseph, was Treasurer of the Colony, from 1755 to 
1769. 

" His wife, Eunice, died suddenly about noon on Thursday, 
May 25, 1738. There could be no session of the general assem- 
bly without the presence of the Governor or Deputy Governor, 
the latter was absent attending the Commissioner's Court, at 
Norwich, and public business was pressing. Gov. Talcott did 
not suffer his private grief to interfere with' his official duty, 
but returned and presided in the upper house in the afternoon. 

A joint committee of both houses was appointed to confer 
on what might be proper to offer to his Honor on the sudden 
and painful event. The House also appointed the Speaker, the 
Clerk and Capt. Samuel Willard to draw an address of condol- 
ence to present to the Governor." 



WILL 



Of Gov. Joseph Talcott, Dec. 25, 1742. 

In the name of God, Amen. I, Joseph Talcott, of Hart- 
ford, in the county of Hartford, in the colony of Connecticut, 
in New England, being of sound mind and memory, thanks be 
given to God therefor : Calling to mind the mortaUty of my 
body, and that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make 
and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament, viz. : Prin- 
cipally and first of all I commit my soul to God, that gave it, 
and my body to the earth, to be buried in a christian, decent 
manner, at the discretion of my executors hereafter named, 
and in hopes of a glorious resurrection through the alone 
merits of Jesus Christ, our exalted Redeemer, and as to my 
worldly estate wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me, I 
do order first that my executors hereafter named, shall pay all 



41 

my just debts they shall find justly due by law, or that they 
suppose justly due in consequence : And that they give out 
of my estate live pounds to such of the poor of the parish that 
I belong to, viz. : To such as my executors shall think to be 
most proper objects of our charity. 

Item: I do order that each of my children that survive me, 
shall have given and allowed to them a decent mourning suit 
of apparel, not to be reconed to them in part of portion. 

Item : I do give to my daughter, Abigail Wadswobth, the 
chest of drawers that was my first wife's so that it shall not be 
reconed into her proportion of the estate, I shall hereafter 
make in this my last Will. 

Item : I do further order that my daughters that shall not 
be disposed of in marriage at my decease, shall have a suffi- 
ciency given or allowed to them of all sorts of the provisions 
necessary and convenient for their support one whole year 
after my decease, out of the crop on the ground, or grain in the 
house, and meat also out of my house or stock, and this I 
order my executors to take care of and not to be charged as 
portion to my said daughters. 

Item : And although I have given my dwelling house and 
homestead by deed of gift unto my son Samuel, I do order 
that if both or either of my daughters, viz. : Jebusha or 
Helena Talcott, shall live unmarried until my decease, and 
after that or either of them, shall have the liberty, free use, 
and improvement of the south lower room, in my now dwell- 
ing house and chamber over it, together with the little lower 
room adjoining, with the liberty for what room may be neces- 
sary for them in the cellars, and such part of the water in well 
cistern &c. as they may need, and that they or she that does 
survive as aforesaid shall have two rods square laid out to them 
in my now garden spot, and south or southerly of the prim 
hedge, all which they or she so living during the time of being 
unmarried, and clioo«e to live in said dwelling house shall have 
free liberty to improve without interruption or molestation, 
and if my son Samuel refuseth a strict compliance with the 
aforesaid paragraph, then I do order that he shall have fifty 

pounds less of my estate than the proportion given him with 
6 



42 

the rest of my children as in this my will hereafter made and 
expressed; and that my said daughter or daughters living 
unmarried as aforesaid and been hindered or molested in her, 
or their improvement as aforesaid shall have the said fifty 
pounds so default, out of my son Samuel's part, given to said 
daughter or daughters so living as aforesaid. 

Item : I do order that after all the foregoing orders, devises 
and legacies are ended, complied with and completed that then 
the remaining part of my whole estate, both real and personal, 
shall be divided as foUoweth, viz. : To my eldest son John Tal- 
coTT a part or portion double to the rest of my sons (Nathan 
and his children excepted), and to my other sons Joseph, Sam- 
uel and Matthew Talcott a double part or portion ; and to 
my daughters, Abigail Wadsworth, Eunice Hooker, Jerusha 
Talcott and Helena Talcott half so much as my three 
youngest and three last mentioned sons (only excepted the fifty 
pounds upon Samuel's interuption or hindrance of his sisters 
that may live unmarried), and this I give to them each and 
every of them and their heirs forever : And in consideration 
of the discount of our bills of credit and uncertainty of that 
currency how they may pass at my decease, I do order and de- 
termine that all my lands that I have given by deeds to any of 
my children in my lifetime, together with what I shall die 
seized of, shall then after my decease be apprized by freehold- 
ers imder oath; either Capt. Nathaniel Stanley, Capt. Ozias 
Pitkin and Capt. William Pitkin, or such others as the court 
of Probate shall appoint, and I do hereby appoint my three 
sons, namely, John Talcott, Joseph Talcott, and Samuel 
Talcott, or any two of them, executors to this my last Will 
and Testament hereby revoking and making void all other and 
former wills, legacies, executors and bequests, only that it is to 
be understood, that whatsoever hath been given to any of my 
children before my decease (as part of portion) shall be ac- 
counted and reconed to them into their pArt of the proportion 
of my estate to them according to the foregoing proposition 
made in this my last Will : And this and this only to be my 
last Will. 

And in testimony that this only is my last Will and Testa- 



43 

ment I have hereunto set my hand and seal, the fifth day of 
May in the year of our Lord God, One Thousand Seven Hun- 
dred and Thirty-Nine.

Samuel Read and Hopestill Holebrook, of Mendon, and was 
bom about 1673, gratluated at H. C. 1697, and was for a time

Boston with great success and was ' unquestionably the great- 
est lawyer of his time/ He was a man of great wit and 
eccentricity of character, which peculiarities have been handed 
down to hi* descentlant* who are numerous in New York, Ver-

The following norioe of Noah Talcott is taken from the 
*•= Old merchants of New York," page 270. 



73 

" How many of the aged of this city, who are rapidly passing 
away, will remember the venerable Noah Taloott, who passed 
along Wall street, with a slight stoop. He was mild and 
gentle as a lamb, yet what a magnificent merchant he had been 
in his prime of life. He had a brother, David Taloott. They 
were in partnership together. Afterward David went to New 
Orleans, a large commission merchant, factor, etc., under the 
firm of Talcoti & Bowers. Mr. Bowers was a brother to 
N. Bowers, now living in Brooklyn, and very rich. 

These Talcoti brothers came from New England. I think 
they were descended from Noah Taloott, who was from 1724 
to 1741, a period of seventeen years. Governor of the Connec- 
ticut Colony (evidently a mistake ; Joseph Taloott was Gov- 
ernor, and this Noah descended from Hezekiah, his brother, as 
• seen above). 

When the New England Society of the State of New 
York was formed in this city, in the spring of 1805, for 
the purpose of friendship, charity and mutual association, 
among its firet members were David and Noah Taloott and 
George Taloott, Jr. (The latter descended from Capt. Samuel 
Taloott, an Uncle of the Governor and a graduate of Harvard 
College, became a Brigadier-General and Chief of the Ord- 
nance Corps of the U. S. Army.) Noah Taloott was a life 
member. 

In 1798, he formed a partnership with one of the Ellis mer- 
chants. The firm was Taloott & Ellis, and their place of 
business was upon Steven's wharf. In 1809 the firm dissolved, 
and Noah Taloott established himself as a commission merchant 
at No. 228 Front street. In 1803 he moved his store to Mur- 
ray's wharf. That year, March 5, he was married to Miss Woods 
by Bishop Moore of Trinity Church. Two years after he 
removed his store to 64 South street and his residence to 
' Bowery Hill.' 

How soon a smart young son of New England would get 
into a large business in the olden time. Whenever the old 
ship 'Joseph' arrived from London, she had a valuable invoice 
for Noah Taloott. The schooner ' Peggy ' traded between this 
port and Martinique, and belonged to Mr. Taloott. The 

10 



74 

schooner ' Ann Margaret' and the ' Robert Martha' also were 
owned by him. He was largely in the Holland trade. 

In 1810, there was no merchant in New York who was doing 
as large a business as Mr. Taloott. 

In 1811, when at No. 64 South street, Noah took into part- 
nership his brother David, under the firm of N. ife D. Talcoti, 
and they kept together until 1819. He was alone again till 1825, 
when he took into partnership a Mr. Lyman and continued 
till 1827, under the firm of Talcott ife Lyman. During the 
years of 1826 and 1827 the operations of this house in cotton 
alone were enormous. 

In 1831 he opened a cotton broker's office at 58 Wall street. 
How well the venerable old gentleman was known in this city 
at that period of his history, now nearly thirty-five years ago. 
He had a gentle way with him that commanded deep esteem.* 

I ought to mention that Mr. Talcott was one of the best 
judges of cotton in the "city of New York. In 1834 he took 
into partnership in his large business, his son Frederick L. Tal- 
cott, and the firm became Noah Talcott & Son, and so con- 
tinued until 1839 (1840) when the fine old gentleman died. 
The house is still kept up under the firm of Talcott Brothers. 

It is a good old race these Talcotts and creditable to the 
city. They are a regular breed of merchants, honorable and 
worthy of the good old founder."

Woods, was bom in New York, Feb. 22, 1813, married Har-

WILL 

Of Joseph Talcott, son of Governor Joseph, Nov. 26, 1780. 

In the Name of God, Amen. I, Joseph Talcott, of Hart- 
ford, in the county of Hartford, and State of Connecticut, being 
advanced in years, yet of good health of body and of sound 
mind and memory do make and ordain this to be my last Will 
and Testament, disposing of my temporal estate as follows, viz.: 
I appoint my only son, Joseph Talcoti, Jr., to be my sole 
executor of this my last Will and Testament, desiring him to 
discharge all my just debts out of the debts due to me from 
many persons or otherwise if he thinks proper. 

Imprimis : I give and bequeath to my said son and to his 
heirs and assigns forever, all my lands and buildings in said 
Hartford, with this proviso that he pay the several legacies 
hereinafter given to my daughters. Also I give him, my said 
son Joseph, all my team tackling, as carts, plows, harrows, 
yokes and chains, and every other tool or implement belonging 
to husbandry farming. Also my silver hilted sword and belt, 
and my silver tankard ; my guns or fire arms, my wearing 
apparel and buckles or buttons of every kind and sort ; and the 
legacies hereafter in this will that is not made up to them in 
my life time, shall be paid at the rate of silver as six shillings 
and eight pence per ounce or six shillings to a silver dollar or 
an equivalent thereto. 

Itein : I give and bequeath to my daughtier, Maky Chukch, 
and to her heirs and assigns forever, the goods and household 
furniture which she had provided for her at the time of her 
marriage with Mr. Joseph Church, amounting according to my 



78 

account, to the sum £75 68. 9rf., and to her husband, Mr. 
Joseph Church, and to my said daughter one note of hand for 
money said Mr. Church borrowed, the principal being £19 4*., 
the interest at six per cent amounting to the sum of £20 15*. 4^., 
to September, 1776. And I also have given my said daughter 
Mary a deed of my land in the township of Hartland, in the 
county of Litchfield, being about 70 acres, which I value to 
her at 10s, per acre amounting to the sum of £35, all which 
sums amount to the sum of one hundred and fifteen pounds 
and six shillings lawful money. I also give to my said daughter 
Maby, the sum of fifty-four pounds fourteen shillings lawful 
money to be paid to her by my executor out of executions the 
said Joseph Church had to collect, or as my said executor may 
think proper, amounting for her portion in the whole to one 
hundred and seventy pounds lawful money. In the above 
account there was six silver spoons which said Mary had not 
charged to her, the value of which must be subtracted out of 
what is given her. 

Itetn: To my daughter Esther Kussell, the wife of the 
Keverend Noadiah Russell, I have already given her by my 
amount at her marriage with the said Mr. Russell, the sum of 
£101 0*. 9</. I also lent to the said Mr. Russell in hand 
money, £24, for which he gave me his note on interest at 6 
per cent to September, 1776, amounted to £24 9«. 6d. I also 
give her and her heirs out of my estate the sum of twenty pound 
ten shillings more to be paid her by my executor which makes 
her full portion of one hundred and seventy pounds. 

Itein : I give and bequeath to my daughter Abigail Cald- 
well, which she received of me about the time of her marriage 
with Mr. George Caldwell in household furniture to the amount 
of forty-nine pounds, seventeen shillings and three pence. I 
have already given by deed of gift to my said daughter Abigail 
the one-half of my rights of land in the township of Winchester, 
in the county of Litchfield, which half of said rights so given 
contains about 95 acres more or less at ten shillings per acre 
amounts to the sum of forty-seven pounds t^n shillings lawful 
hard money, making with said household furniture, ninety- 
seven pounds, seven shillings and three pence. I also give her 



79 

the sum of seventy-two pounds twelve shillings and nine pence 
in moveable estate which in all makes one hundred and seventy 
pounds, being her full portion of my estate. 

Iterrh: I give and bequeath to my daughter. Susanna Tal- 
OOTT and to her heirs and assigns forever, the sum of twenty-one 
pound nine shillings and six pence as part of her portion 
which she has already received in money, and also I have given 
her a deed of the one-half of my aforesaid Winchester land 
which I value to her at forty-seven pounds ten shillings, both 
of which sums amounts to sixty-eight pounds nineteen shillings 
and six pence. I also give to my said daughter Susanna, one 
hundred and one pounds and six pence, which will make her 
portion to amount to one hundred and seventy pounds lawful 
money to be paid her out of my moveable estate, or by my 
executor as he or my said daughter may agree ; and whereas 
my said daughter, Susannah, hath taken a great deal of care 
of her mother, deceased, and of me in my advanced age, as a 
recompence for her extraordinary trouble, I give to her one 
good feather bed, which she shall choose, and under bed 
and bolster, two pillows and cases, bedstead and rope, and 
one pair of curtains and Vallance, and two good coverlids 
for said bed, and all my silver spoons and silver pepper 
box and tea tongs, and ten pounds in money. I also give 
to my said daughter, Susanna, one middling cow to her dis- 
pose ; ordering my executor to pasture said cow in summer 
and provide stover for said cow in winter yearly, and give the 
same to said cow yearly so long as the said Susanna remains 
a single woman and lives in Hartford, and also her mother's 
clothes and what linen cloth of any denomination whatever 
belongs to my estate at my decease, I give the same to my 
said daughter Susanna, as sheets, table cloths, napkins, towels, 
etc. ; I also give to my said daughter the privilege of living in 
one of the lower rooms in my dwelling-house, either the east 
or the west and which she shall choose, with the chamber over 
said room so long as she remains unmarried, and a small privi- 
lege in my cellar sufficient for her use, and also the privilege 
of a piece of my garden the north side thereof, two rods wide 
of the north side, for her improvement during the time she 



80 

remaius single, and provided my said son, Joseph, should 
refuse to let my said daughter, Susanna, live in my house as 
aforesaid, then in lieu thereof, I give and bequeath to the said 
Susanna otie piece of land in said Hartford, and called the 
" Richards lot," being two acres and a small piece of land near 
the *' Meadow Bridge," butting westerly on the creek for her 
improvement during her life, and if the debts due to me, and 
any moveable estate be not suflScient to discharge my debts 
and legacies given by this Will, then I order my said son to 
pay the same out of what I have given him. 

And when my executor has paid and discharged my debts 
and funeral expenses, and the legacies to my said several 
daughters given them by this Will, all the rest and residue of 
my estate, whether real or personal wheresoever it may be, 
shall be and remain to him, his heirs and assigns forever. 

In witness of the foregoing, I have hereunto set my hand 
and seal in Hartford this 16th day of September, A. D. 1779. 

Signed, sealed and declared by the testator to be his last 
Will in the presence of us witnesses. 

Now, before signing, whereas I have counted to the afore- 
said Susanna and Abigail, my daughters, my land in Win- 
chester, and counted only on two ninety-live acre lots, since 
which time there is laid out a third ninety-five acre lot to me 
or them, the said Susanna and Abigail, and the taxes on said 
lands increasing annually, I therefore hereby give and confirm 
unto them the said Susanna and Abigail, their heirs and 
assigns forever, the last lot of ninety-five acres laid out in said

daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Hobert, his wife, and was bom 
in 1713. 

Peters, in his veracious history of Connecticut, states that, 
" when the Episcopalians began the erection of the first church 
of that denomination in Hartford, in 1762, Samuel Talcott 
raised a mob which destroyed the foundation, and afterwards 
took the stones and used them in building his own house." 
Though Col. Talcott had nothing to do with the mob, yet he 
did purchase the stones of a man who had no right to sell 
them, and then used them, thereby gaining the ill-will of the 
churchmen. 

In 1786 the Episcopalians again commenced building a 
church edifice, and when the ceremony of laying the comer 
stone took place, one of the chief men urged another to make 
^ some remarks, whereupon he stood up and said : " I lay the 
comer-stone of the first Episcopal Church in Hartford, and 
Sam. Talcott and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." 

Hezekiah Wyllys, grandson of Gov. George Wyllys, was 
bom April 3, 1672 ; was Secretary of State from 1711 to 1734, 
and died in 1741. His grandfather, George Wyllys, came to

estate. He owned 480 acres of land in Glastenbury, Conn., in 
1640. Chosen Lieut.-Governor in 1641, Governor in 1642,

Doctor Daniel Lathrop died in Norwich, 1782. " Madam " 
Lathrop, his widow, died in Norwich, Sept., 1805. 

Doctor Daniel Lathrop was descended from the Rev. John 
Lothrop, of Barnstable, 1634, through Samuel, of Norwich, 
1670. He was graduated at Yale College, in 1733 ; went to 
London, England, where he studied medicine for several yeara. 
On his return he brought with him a large quantity of medi- 
cines, and was the first druggist in Norwich, and probably the 
first in Connecticut. He furnished a part of the stores for the 
northern army in the French war. He took into partnership 
his younger brother, Joshua, who was graduated at Yale Col- 
lege in 1743, under the firm of the Bros. Lathrop ; with them 
began the change of the orthography of the name. In 1776, 
the name of the firm was changed to Lathrop & Coit. Doctor 
Daniel had " three precious sons cut down like flowers of the 
field, almost at a single sweep of the scythe, before the oldest 
had attained the age of four years." This was all the offspring 
they had. Madam Lathrop long mourned the Doctor and was 
regarded with universal esteem. " The early childhood of the 



88 

gifted daughter of Norwich, Mrs. L. H. Sigoumey, was passed 
under the roof of this excellent lady. Having lost her own 
children in their infancy, she lavished all her maternal affec- 
tion on this child of her heart, who repaid her tenderness with 
filial veneration and has embalmed her memory in hallowed 
verse. Mrs. Sigourney was the daughter of Ezekiel Huntley, 
was born Sept. 1, 1791 ; m. Charles Sigourney, of Hartford, 
June 16, 1819." 

Dr. Daniel and Joshua Lathrop were of the fourth generation 
of the name in Norwich, sons of Thomas, who died May 26, 
1774, ffi. 93. They had one sister who married Joseph Coit, 
of New London. Dr. Joshua died in 1807. 

" Doctor Daniel, in common with others, wore a white wig 
and cocked hat. He rode to meeting in a yellow chaise with a 
red morocco top, with a negro driver in front, his dignified 
companion, the daughter of Gov. Taloott, sitting by his side.'*

HON. SAMUEL A. TALCOTT. 



»1 

on the expiration of his term of office renominated by the Gov- 
ernor and confirmed by a nnanimoas vote of the Senate. " He 
was second in talent and ability to no man who ever held that 
office, unless it be Alexander Hamilton." He held the office 
for eight years. 

At the opening of the Supreme Court on Monday morning, 
March 21, 1836, the death of the late Samuel A, Taloott was 
announced by H. R. Storrs, Esq., whereupon the court, after a 
feeling and eloquent address by Chief-Justice Jones, as a mark 
of respect to the memory of Mr. Taloott, without proceeding 
to business, adjourned to the next morning. 

At a meeting of the members of the New York Bar, held at 
the Supreme Court Room, in the City Hall of New York, on 
the 21st March, 1836, 

" It was resolved, unanimously, that this meeting have heard 
with deep regret and sympathy of the death of Samuel A. 
Taloott, Esq., late Attorney-General of this State, that in the 
brilliant course of his professional life, they find much to shed 
honor not only upon his own name but upon the State to which 
he belonged, and the Bar whose reputation he elevated ; that 
his distinguished talent, profound learning and finished scholar- 
ship have rarely been equaled and never been surpassed at the 
Bar of this State. 

^^ Resolved^ That as a mark of respect for his memory we 
will attend his funeral this afternoon, and that a copy of these 
resolutions be transmitted to his family and published in the 
newspapers." 

SAMUEL JONES, Chairman. 
CHARLES GRAHAM, Secreta/ry. 

Never probably did a young man come to the bar in this 
or any other State of the Union with higher qualifications for 
the profession, and he very soon assumed a station among those 
deservedly at its head. He had a force of learning, acuteness 
of reasoning, and power of argument worthy of one of the 
proudest intellects of the age, and against which few could suc- 
cessfully contend.

times, and that more attention should be given to the natural 
sdenees and modem languages, was just b^inning to prevail, 
and led to the establishment of the institution referred to. He

mitted to the bar, and began the practice of law in Oswego,

upon the farm given to him, by his father's will, which was 
purchased of Mr. Samuel Sherman and Mr. Richard Gilder- 
sleeve, in the year 1643. This house was a large wooden 
building on the Main street, and was fortified and used as a 
place of refuge from the frequent attacks of the Indians, and

bore tlie marks of the bullets, until it was taken down, soon 
after the year 1854. This farm and buildings thereon are 
now owned and occupied (18Y6) by J abed G. Talcjott, one of 
his descendants, having been in the family over 200 years.

same year he returned to Wethersfield, Conn., and was a repre- 
sentative in that colony until his death in 1655. He was

which caused the removal of the latter to Hadley. He was

WILL. 



The last will and testament of Lieutenant Benjamin Tal- 
cott, late of Glastenbury, Ct., deceased, Nov. 12, 1727. 

I, Benjamin Talcott, being now weak of body but through 
the goodness of God, of good and perfect memory, do make 
and declare this to be my last will and testament in manner 
and form following : 

And first being humbled for my sins, beggmg the pardon of 
them, I commit my soul into the hands of my merciful God 
who gave it, hoping by the alone merits of Jesus Christ for 
salvation, and my body to a decent burial, and for the settling 
of my worldly estate which God has given me, I do dispose of 
the same as follows, viz. : 

I will that all my just debts be well and truly paid by my 
Executors. 

Imprimis. I give and bequeath to my beloved Wife, the 
sum of four score pounds out of my moveable estate at inven- 
tory price, or in money if my executors shall think best, except- 
ing what my said Wife bro't with her, which my mind and 
will is that she shall have it back again at inventory price as 
part of the said four score pounds — what may be found left 
of it — and the use of the parlor room in the house in which I 
now dwell, and a convenient part of the cellar underneath it 
and the garret room that is over it, and the use of my ovens, 



107 

and the use of such a part of my gardens as may be necessary 
for her own comfort, and the use of one-third part of my 
orchard on the west side of the highway on the lot on which I 
now dwell, with the use of one-third part of all the rest of my 
land on that side of said highway down to the great river. 

It is to be understood that my said wife is to have the use 
of the said house and land, no longer than she remains my 
widow. 

I give and bequeath unto my son, Benjamin, all my right of 
lands in the towns of Bolton, and one hundred and twenty- 
four acres of land in the town of Hebron, which I bought 
of Joseph and John Phelps, of said Hebron, with what I have 
already given to my said son as may appear by my book of 
accompts. 

I give to my son, John, all the rest of my lands in the said 
town of Hebron, particularly that tract of land in said Hebron 
lying west of Jacob Root's land, containing three hundred 
acres, and that half hundred acres of land in said Hebron, I 
bought of Ashel Owen, lying northward of Richard Curtis ; 
and one yoke of steers coming four years old, and ten pound 
out of my moveable estate, besides what I have already given, 
as appears by my book of accompts, and fifteen pounds money 
to be paid by my son, Elizur, at or before he, my said son Eli- 
zuR, arrives at the age of twenty-one years. 

I give and bequeath imto my son, Samuel, the one-half of 
the lot of land I now dwell upon, on the south side, and one 
hundred and fifty-three acres of land lying within the bounds 
of Glastenbury, beyond Black ledge river adjoining to Hebron 
bounds, and the one-half of my undivided lands in said Glas- 
tonbury ; and my Smith-shop and all my smithery tools (ex- 
cepting any I shall give to my son John), and my longest gun 
and the one-half of my present team, and team tackling, as 
collars, harness, chains, cart and wheels, plows and harrows. 

I give and bequeath unto my son, Elizub, the other half 
the lot of land I now dwell upon on the north side, with the 
buildings thereon (excepting Smith-shop) and sixty acres of 
land lying in Glastenbury, eastwardly of and adjoining the 
lands of the heirs of the Rev. Mr. Stevens, deceased, at the 



108 

place called the Ash Swamp, and ninety-Bix acres of land in 
said Glastenbury, lying eastward of the great or bare hill ad- 
joining southwardly to lands of Samuel Loveland, and the other 
half of all my undivided lands in said Glastenbury, and my 
newest gun, and the other half of my team and team tackling 
as above mentioned, he my said son, Elizuk, paying to my 
said son, John, the sum of fifteen pounds money as above 
mentioned. 

And further my mind and will is that all the woolen cloth 
and one piece of linen of about forty yards, that is now about 
to weave, which my wife has made or shall make this present 
year, be disposed of to my Wife and to my Children unmar- 
ried, as my Wife thought to do in my life-time. 

I give to my said sons, Samuel and Elizub, all the fences 
that are erected upon the lot of land I now dwell upon as they 
stand upon the parts of land given them, and all the rest of 
the fencing stuflE I have now prepared to set up. 

All the aforementioned lands, goods, chattels and sums of 
money as they are respectively given to my four sons, Benja- 
min, John, Samuel and Elizuk, I do give it to them, their 
heirs and assigns forever; and if it should please God to take 
away by death any of my said sons before they legally dispose 
of their said lands, or have any issue, my mind and will is that 
his part of lands shall be equally divided among the rest of my 
surviving sons. 

I give my daughter, Sarah, one hundred pounds in or as 
money, with what I have given to her as appears in my book 
of accompts. It is to be understood that what my said 
daughter has had as is upon book as aforesaid, is to be part of 
said hundred pounds, and the remaining part to be paid in 
convenient season after my decease. 

I give to my daughter, Hannah, one hundred pounds and a 
decent suit of clothes or ten pounds money, the whole to be 
paid her out of my moveable estate or in money, in convenient 
season after my decease. 

I give to my daughter, Mehitabel, one hundred pounds 
and a decent suit of clothes or ten pounds money, the whole 
to be paid her out of my moveable estate or in money, when 



109 

she shall arrive at the age of eighteen years, or her day of 
marriage which shall happen first, and she to have the income 
or profit of her part, if any there be, immediately after my 
decease. In case that either of my said daughters, Hannah 
or Mehttabel, shall die before marriage, my mind and will is 
that her estate, so dying, shall be legally divided between her 
surviving sisters. 

And in case there should not be moveables enough found at 
my decease to pay the legacies given in this my will, my mind 
and will is that my said sons, Samuel and Elizur, pay their 
equal proportions of what is wanting at or Tbefore my son, 
Elizur, comes to the age of twenty-one years ; that is to say, 
my said sons, Samuel and Elizub, shall pay the whole of what 
shall be wanting out of their estates without the rest of their 
brethren ; and in case my moveable estates should amount to 
more than to pay the legacies given in this my will, my mind 
and will is that it be equally divided among all my seven chil- 
dren. 

I do appoint my sons, Jonathan Hale and BENjAMm Tal- 
coTT, to be my Executors, to see that this my will be truly 
performed ; and in confirmation of this my last will and testa- 
ment, in every part of it, I hereunto set my hand and seal 
this thirteenth day of October, in the first year of the reign of 
King George the second. Anno Domini 1727.

Justice of the Peace, and noted for strict probity in that office. 
He was early elected Deacon of the Second Congregational 
Church, of Coventry, and held the office until Dec. 8, 1822,

family to say that three of his sons became deacons of the 
same church, and a fourtli son was a clergyman, and a 
daughter became tlie wife of a deacon in the first parish of 
the same town. He settled his sons upon farms from his 
own acres, and like Job of old he gave liis daughters " inherit- 
ance among their brethren." He died as he liad lived in the 
Christian faith.

and Chauncey A. Goodrich, of New Haven ; Judge Wm. W. 
Ellsworth and Professor S. F. B. Morse, of telegraphic fame. 
Alter teaching a year at Newcastle, Me., he entered Andover 
Theological Seminary and remained there three years. Dur- 
ing the next two years he preached at various places in Con- 
necticut, Massachusetts and New York, and for a part of the 
time was under the direction of the Connecticut Home Mis- 
sionary Society, of which he was the first missionary. He was 
ordained Oct. 23, 1816, pastor of the First Congregational 



180 

Church, in Chatham (now Portland), Ct., where he remained 
until his death, a period of almost fifty yeai-s. He was able to 
discharge all the duties of this office untQ within five years of 
his death, when he requested to be relieved somewhat and a 
colleague was appointed. He furnished an excellent example 
of those ministers of whom Xew England has produced so 
many, characterized by prudence, fidelity and the ability to 
grow with their parishes, so that they spent their days over 
one church. Mr. TALcorr's characteristics were a sincere and 
childlike piety, an unvarying devotion to his work, a well- 
balanced and clear head, a genial and kindly manner, an un- 
usual discreetness of conduct, and before all men a blameless 
life. All these qualities combined to make him greatly loved 
and honored in Portland, and his pastorate was long and suc- 
cessful. It is a striking proof of his prudence that though 
his church was rent by many dissensions during his pastorate, 
he retained the respect and confidence of every one, almost 
without an exception. As a preacher he was earnest, pointed, 
instructive and scnptural. He could never be called brilliant, 
but had those qualities of a speaker that wear well. Person- 
ally he always gave one the idea of a high toned christian gen- 
tleman. His piety was apparent, but not obtrusive, and his 
presence was always attractive to young and old, and yet an 
air of godliness about him wa^s sufficient to keep improprieties 
and wronof-doino: at a distance without a word of rebuke. In 
his family he was greatly loved, and he gave example as well 
as precept in keeping a '" well-oi"dered christian household."

body's friend, was not hasty in judgment, took time for reflec- 
tion in respect to almost every thing that engaged his attention, 
was almost always serene, while his resolution and will to do 
his part made him a man of wonderful energy and persever- 
ance, lie was, in connection with his brother, Charles Den- 
NisoN Talcott, engaged in the manufacturing business, and 
they have built up the village of Talcottville, where they 
resided. Severe over-exertion of body and mind in his business 
was the cause of his death. A memorial address was delivered 
by the Kev. G. A. Oviatt, in the Congregational Church, at 
Talcottville, upon the death of Dea. Horace W. Talcott, to 
which reference can be made for a more detailed account of his

Capt. William Talcoit emigrated with liis family to Rome, 
Oneida (\>., X. Y., ii) 1810, where they remained till 1837. 

Dnring the war of 1812 to 1815, the militia of Oneida 
county w^as called out and stationed at Sackett's Harbor, JS^. Y.. 
under the connnand of Gen. Winfield Scott, at which time he 
held a lieutenant's comnn'ssion in a company which belonged 
to the 157th Eegiment of the Militia of the State. 



208 

In 1835, together with his oldest son, Thomas B., he ex- 
plored what was then the " great west," making the trip with 
a horse and buggy (it being prior to the age of railroads), and 
selected a location at the jimction of the Eock and Pecatouica 
rivers, the place was known as Rockton, Winnebago Co., 111., 
to which place he moved his family in 1837. Erected mills, 
which were for a long time the pioneer mills of the country 
and did the custom grinding for a large section of the sur- 
rounding country, customers coming with their grists from 
Fort Winnebago, about 120 miles. 

Always anxious to lay good foundations for the religious 
interests of society, early after the arrival of his family, on the 
23d of March, 1838, he assisted in organizing the first Congre- 
gational Church there, consisting of fourteen members, of 
which five were of the Talcott familv, Mr. William Tal- 
coTT, Mrs. Dorothy Talcott, Miss IIakkiet X. Talcott, Miss 
Prvdence II. TALcorr and Mr. Walter H. Talcott. Some 
years afterward, when the church had increased so as to build 
a meeting-house, he gave the society a bell. 

On the records of the church for June 12, 1855, is found 
the following : 

"On motion Hesolved^ that for the donation of a bell by 
William Talcoti, he is entitled to the thanks of this church 
and society, and the clerk is hereby directed to enter this reso- 
lution upon the records." 

Subsequently at a town-meeting a \'ote of thanks was also 
passed, and it was ordered that his name be inscribed on the 
bell at the expense of the town. 

lie was identified with the anti-slavery movement from the 
first, and when it assumed a political organization, and at the 
great National Convention of the Liberty Party, at Buffalo, 
N. Y., in 1841, nominated James (1. Biniey for the Presidency, 
and was one of seven who voted the ticket in the county of 
Winnebago, 111., which, in 1860, was the banner county of the 
United States, giving a larger per cent of its vote for the 
lamented Lincoln than any other county.

MAJ. THOMAS B. TALCOTT. 



209 

1535. 

Maj. Thomas B., son of (1524) Capt. William Tal- 
cott and Dorothy Blish, was born at Hebron, Ct., April 17, 
1806, married Sophia E., daughter of Asa Willard and Lucy 
Whiting (b. at Vernon, Oneida Co., N. Y., Nov. 11, 1824), 
June 5, 1843, and had 

1535 (Infant son), b. July 22, 1849, at Rockton ; d. July 25, 1849. 

Maj. Thomas B. Talcott emigrated to Horseheads, Che- 
mung Co., N. Y., in 1831, where he was engaged in mercan- 
tile pursuits, from thence he removed to what is now called 
Rockton, Winnebago Co., 111., in 1835, when the country was 
comparatively a wilderness, with the Winnebago Indians for 
neighbors. At that time there were not more than half a 
dozen families in the territory that is now represented by 
Winnebago, Boon and the east half of Stephenson counties. 
Chicago was a small village and all of the north half of the 
State was included in one congressional district. The repre- 
sentative in congress for which resided in Springfield, and 
from thence started out among the new settlements looking up 
his constituents. 

Major Talcott was elected one of the first county commis- 
sioners, and together with William E. Dunbar and Simon P. 
Doty, organized the county of Winnebago, including the terri- 
tory as stated above, on the first day of August, 1836. He 
was elected to the State Senate in the fall of 1849, and repre- 
sented Winnebago, Boone and McHenry counties four years, 
during which time the Illinois Central Railroad was chartered, 
which at the time was one of the longest railroads under one 
direction in the comitry. . 

Mrs. Sophia E. Talcott^, wife of Maj. Thomas B., is a 
descendant of the Rev. Samuel Whiting, D. D., and Elizabeth 
St. John, his wife, who came to America in 1636, and through 
whom her genealogy is traced back to William the Conqueror 
in two distinct lines.

Elizabeth Anna^ the wife of Dea. Wait Talcott, died at 
Kockford, 111., Aug. 7, 1873. 

Dea. Wait Talcott went to Rome, N. Y., with his parents 
in 1810, when three years old, and remained there till he was 
eighteen years of age, and then went into a store at Booneville, 
Oneida Co., N. Y. After a few years apprenticeship he com- 
menced business at Utica, N. Y. He remained there till 1830, 
and then removed to the village of Horseheads, Chemung Co., 
N. Y., and engaged in mercantile pursuits, where he resided at 
the time of his marriage, in 1834. In 1837, he closed his 
business in that place and emigrated to Illinois in the fall of 
1838, and reached Rockton, Winnebago, Co., on the 12th of 
October, having made the trip from New York State with his 
family in a two horse covered emigrant wagon in six weeks, 
passing through Chicago which then had probably 3,500 or 
4,000 inhabitants. 

On the 8th of Dec, 1838, his family united by letter from 
the First Presbyterian Church, at Horseheads, N. Y., with the 
First Congregational Church, at Rockton.

great work, and Dea. Talcott having been identified with it 
from its first start, was prepared to take some action upon it.

HON. WAIT TALCOTT, 



211 

the following resolutions presented by Watt Talcott were dis- 
cussed and carried over for further consideration at the next 
monthly meeting. They were considered at two or three 
monthly meetings, and finally adopted by a nearly unanimous 
vote. 

" 1st. Resolved^ That American slavery is unjust and cruel 
to the slave and detrimental to the master, is productive of 
unmixed evil to the country, is a great sin in the sight of God 
and ought to be abolished. 

2d. Resolved^ That immediate emancipation is nothing more 
than the application of the principles of Christianity to the 
sin of slavery, that a profession in the belief of those principles 
demands a practical opposition to that system of slavery which 
disgraces our land. 

3d. Resolvedj That we will not invite a slaveholder to our 
communion table, nor would we wish our Pastor to invite a 
slaveholder to the pulpit. 

4th. Resolvedy That these resolutions be signed by the 
moderator and clerk, and forwarded to the New York Evan- 
gelist and Western Citizen for pubUcation." 

Dea. Wait Talcott, on the 4th of March, 1854, went into 
the manufacture of the " J. H. Manny combined Reaper and 
Mower," at Rockford, 111., in connection with J. H. Manny, 
the patentee, and Sylvester Talcott, his brother, under the 
firm name of J. H. Manny & Co. In the autumn of 1864, he 
was elected to the State Senate, representing the counties of 
Winnebago, Boone, McHenry and Ogle for the term of four 
years. By his official position he was brought into acquaint- 
ance and friendship with the Hon. Abraham Lincoln, who was 
a candidate for the United States Senate at the session of the 
Illinois Legislature, in 1855, and for whom was carried the 
anti-slavery vote in solid body, until he said to his friend, 
Judge Logan, " you must drop my name for you cannot ballot 
more than three or four times more without electing Gov. 
Mattison." His friends acting on his suggestion. Judge Trum- 
bull was elected on the second ballot thereafter. 

In the fall of 1854, a new Reaper Company was formed 
under the name of Manny & Co., Ralph Emerson, Jr., and 



212 

Jesse Blinn becoming partners. Soon after this the company 
was sued by Cyrus H. McCormick, of Chicago, under the 
charge of infringing his reaper patents. The litigation was 
long and very thorough, so much so that Justice McLean of 
the United States Supreme Court said of it after it was finished, 
" that he had never known a case so thoroughly litigated since 
he had been on the bench." It was also very expensive, cost- 
ing the company over* $75,000. Peter H. Watson, formerly 
of Rockford,, HI., was their attorney, having charge of the case, 
and Edwin M. Stanton, then of Pittsburgh, Pa., and George 
Harding, of Philadelphia, Pa., were the associate counsel, 
assisted at the first trial, at Cincinnati, before Justice McLean 
and Judge Drummond, by the Hon. Abraham Lincoln, of 
Springfield, 111. 

The case was finally decided by the Supreme Court in favor 
of Manny'ife Co. Three of the lawyers employed by them, 
who met for the first time in this suit, and but for it might 
never have known each other, Abraham Lincoln, Edwin M. 
Stanton and Peter H. Watson, were put in high places of 
power. The immortal Lincoln was called to the Presidential 
Chair, whose sa^acitv selected the most wonderful War Minis- 
ter of the world, Hon. Edwin M. Stanton, to take charge of 
the War Department, who would not accept the office un- 
less provision was made for Mr. Watson to help him, and so 
Congress made a place such as there never has been in the his- 
tory of our government for Mr. Watson, to occupy, that of 
Assistant Secretary of War. 

Mr. Stanton while battling in the McCormick suit, when ! 

consulted in regard to a compromise said, " I know of but one 
way to compromise, that is with a sword in your hand and 
smite and keep smiting," tlius exhibiting one of the very ele- 
ments of the great War Minister he was destined to become. 

Manny & Co. paid the Hon. Abraliam Lincoln, in the Mc- 
Cormick case, a retaining fee of $1,000, which Mr. Lincoln 
said was the largest retainer he had ever received, which 
enabled him to stump the State of Illinois with Stephen A. 
Douglas, and laid the foundation for his election to the Presi- 
dency. 



213 

After the Internal Revenue Bureau was established, Mr. 
Lincoln, entirely unsolicited, decided to give Dea. Talcott 
the appointment of Collector for the second district of Illinois, 
and communicated the fact to him in a letter of which the fol- 
lowing is a copy : 

Executive Mansion, ) 
Washington, August 27, 1862. f 

Hon. Wait Taloott : 

My Dear Sir : I have determined to appoint you Collector. 
I now have a very special request to make of you, which is that 
you will make no war upon Mr. Washburne, who is also my 
friend of longer standing than yourself. I shall even be obliged 
if you can do something for him if occasion presents. 

Yours truly, 

A. LINCOLN. 

After receiving this and previous to the appointment (which 
bears date Aug. 28, 1862, and the commission by letters-patent 
March 4, 1863), Dea. Talcott was in Washington, and Mr. 
Lincoln voluntarily gave him a card of introduction to the 
Secretary of the Treasury and Commissioner of Internal Reve- 
nue, of which the following is a copy : 

Mr. Seg. of Treasury and Com. of Revenue : 

Please see Mr. Talcott, one of the best men there is, and, if 
any difference, one they would like better than they do me. 

A. LINCOLN. 

August 18, 1862. 

Mr. Wait Talcott's relations with the lamented and mar- 
tyred Lincoln, from his first acquaintance till his death, were 
those of a very enjoyable friendship. At the time of the 
assassination of the President, Mr. Talcott was on his way to 
Washington and reached there in time to attend his funeral 
from the Executive Mansion. He was in the procession to the 
Capitol, having been appointed by the citizens of Illinois who 
were present, one of the mourners to represent the State in the 
funeral ceremonies.

At the breaking out of the Rebellion, he was quite past the 
age fixed by law for the draft, but when the pressure for men 
came, and the government passed a law allowing persons to be 
represented by substitutes who would stand in their places and 
be designated by their names, he paid a large bounty to Char- 
les H. Kedington, a soldier who had already served out a three 
years enlistment, and who returned as his representative and 
filled a place for him until the close of the war. Redington 
was a soldier in the 45th Illinois Cavalry, which pursued Booth 
after the assassination of the President, to where he crossed 
the Potomac and was taken. The certificate of the govern- 
ment for this representative service in the war, signed by Gen. 
James B. Fry, Provost Marshal General, is carefully preserved 
as evidence of deep interest in this wonderful chapter of the 
world's history. 

From evidence lately discovered it is claimed that the 
wife of the Hon. Wait Talcott descended from the glorious 
old martyr. Archbishop Cranmer, who, in 1556, perished 
bravely hi the flames during the persecution of Bloody Ma^J^

Walter Henry Talcott died at Rockton, 111., Dec. 9, 1870. 
He went to Illinois in Oct., 1835, and located at the junction 
of Rock and Pecatonica rivers, he traveled on foot through the 
then almost uninhabited country west of the lake, and was 
obliged to camp out two nights on the way. After dark the 
first night found a cornfield where the corn had been cut up 
and " stooked," supposing he was near some house, he hallowed 
but heard no response, he encamped for the night in one of 
the "stooks" of corn. In the morning he found the house 
quite near, but there being only women in the house who were 
afraid, they did not reply to his call the night before. The 
next night he encamped near where Beloit, Wis., is located. 
Chicago was for a long time the nearest post-oflice, and the 
customary way to get letters was for some one of the settlers 
to go with their ox team and bring out the mail to the settle- 
ment. He was identified at an early day with the anti-slavery 
movement in the country, and was uncompromising in his 
hostility to slavery and all the laws favoring it. He was 
firmly attached to the Liberty Party from its organization.

Dwight liCwii^, son of (1530) Walter Henry Talcott

of Rockton, 111., Oct. 12, 1869, and had

Dwight Lewis Talcott enlisted in the Union army at the 
age of lYi years, at Belvidere, Boone Co., 111., Jan. 3, 1864. 
Was a member of Company I, 9th Regt. 111. Vol. Cavalry. 
Was provost guard in Fort Pickering, near Memphis, Tenii., 
until March 18, 1864, when he came home with the regiment 
on " veteran furlough." Acted as courier and orderly to Capt. 
J. W. Harper, until the following fall. Harper commanded 
the regiment and afterward the brigade. 

The regiment traveled by railroad, steamboat and marches 
over 30,000 miles, and scoured the States of Missouri, Arkan- 
sas, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi, from end to end. 

The following is a list of the principal battles in which it 
took part: Pontotoc, Miss., July 12, 1804; Tupelo, July 15 
and 10, 1864; Old Town Creek, Miss., July 16, 1864; Talla- 
hatchie, Aug. 10, 1864; Abbyville, Miss., Aug. 12, 1864; Hur- 
ricane Creek, Aug. 13, 1864; Oxford, Miss., Aug. 14, 1864; 
Savannah, Tenn., Oct. 14, 1864 ; Shoal River, Ala., Xov. 6, 10, 
11, 16, 18 and 19, 1864; Lawrenceburg, Tenn., Nov. 21,1864; 
Pulaski, Tenn., Nov. 22, 1864; Campbellsville, Tenn., Nov. 
24, 1864, which was Thanksgiving day of that year. 

The night of July 11, 1864, he saved a comrade from falling 
into the clutches of two rebels who were crawling upon him. 
The same night, was the only man of eight that stood to his 
post and maintained his ground until help arrived, the rest 
breaking for camp when the pickets were attacked. At Old 
Town Creek, July 16, 1864, the stock of his gun was hit by a 
spent ball while loading ; in the same fight the breach of the 
gun burst while firing. 

Near Abbyville, while scouting, shot at two negroes mis- 
taking them for guerrillas, happily missed them and discovered 
the mistake. 

At White Station, Miss., in the fall of 1864, while outside 
of the picket lines with a comrade, gathering wild fruit, dis- 
covered several bushwhackers coming who had not seen them, 
but caught sight of them as they jumped for their horses, and 
they had a [race for life, ruiming their horses all the way to 
camp, something over a mile, the bushwhackers in pursuit, the 






223 

bullets whistling around them all the time, but reached the 
lines in safety. 

While out foraging one day, rode into a eroMjd of guerrillas, 
taking them for Our men, as they had on our uniforms. As 
they were busy about their breakfast, soon slipped their com- 
pany, without their- discoyering ''the Yankee." 

Was in the saddle on one occasion oyer forty-eight hours, 
stopped three times to feed horses, and marched 200 miles. 

In the fight at Shoal Eiyer, crossed the riyer three times 
while under a lieayy fire from the enemy, they being located 
on high bluffs, the water fairly boiling from the force of the 
bullets, which fell as thick as hailstones. On another occasion 
got placed between two fires, that of the rebels and of the 
Union troops. Noy. 19, were surrounded by the enemy, and 
retreat across the riyer being impossible, cut an outlet and- 
escaped, passing down by file, a steep miry bank, obliquely 200 
feet. The mortification and apparent chagrin of the rebels 
when they found their prey had unexpectedly escaped their 
snare, was made known by hideous yells, such as only rebels 
can make. At Lawrenceburg had some yery close calls from 
the bullets of the enemy, but came out without a scratch. At 
Campbellsyille while retreating, as the road passed through a 
narrow gorge, the enemy attempted to cut the command in 
tw^o. Being ordered to hold the gap at all hazards, the regi- 
ment had scarcely dismounted, when a heayy fire was receiyed 
from a brigade of the enemy. Not a particle daunted they 
adyanced until it became a hand to hand coufiict. The com- 
pany of which he was a member lost twenty-four men in as 
many minutes, and all were killed or wounded but four, who 
were taken prisoners, he being one of the fom\ When cap- 
tured he had 200 rounds of ammunition, which were not giyen 
up with gun and belt, but kept from the enemy and destroyed. 
Was soon stripped of hat, boots, gloyes, knife and spurs, and 
was searched by the rebels fiye* or six times during the first 
night. One of them found some photographs of his parents 
which he begged the priyilege of keeping, but with an oath 
they were tossed into the fire. For eight days had no food, 
except the com picked up where the horses had been fed. 



224 

Were kept at Fort Columbia, Tenn., for fifteen days, living on 
less^tlian an ear of corn a day. Dec. 17, 1864, after Hood's 
defeat at Nashville, started for southern prisons ; marched to 
luka, Miss., thence by rail via Corinth and Jackson, Miss., 
Montgomery, Ala., and Macon, Ga., to Anderson ville. The 
prisoners being crowded into box ears, with neither room to sit 
or lie down, from two to six died in each car every day. Ar- 
riving at Andersonville, saw 200 prisoners joining the rebel 
army, taking the oath of the Southern Confederacy, and draw- 
ing clothing and rations. 

The future looked dark to the new arrivals, but they took 
new courage when they foimd that not a native born Ameri- 
can was in the lot. In the prison met fellow prisoners, mere 
walking skeletons covered with filth and vermin. Had no 
protection from the weather in the shape of clothing, but the 
few rags they were allowed to keep. Had no wood, no food, 
no wholesome water, not even pure air to breathe, for the odor 
of the stockade was detected before it was reached. A railing 
around the inside, about one rod from the stockade, constituted 
the " dead line," which to touch or pass was " death." Ke- 
ceiving no notice of it, came near being shot within an hoiu* 
after arrival by an attempt to pass under it, but was pulled 
back and saved by a comrade. Burrowed in the ground for 
several weeks, taking a severe cold became sick, lost flesh very 
rapidly and could hardly crawl. Had not any medical treat- 
ment, nor had any of the prisoners, so far as known, and no 
religious privileges. The prisoners seemed crazed by their 
condition, and the stronger preyed upon the weaker. The 
prison covered about thirty acres, and part of the time was 
densely crowded. Sometimes two wagon loads of dead bodies 
were hauled out in one day. Twenty-eight per cent of all the 
prisoners received died in the prison. Their last resting place 
was called the " bone-yard," by their fellow prisoners, for they 
were generally mere skeletons, and died from starvation. 
Having the scurvey, accompanied with diarrhoea, became so 
weak were necessarilv transferred to another stockade, called a 
hospital, about one-fourth as large as the former, surrounded 
on three sides by wet swampy land, very little, if any, better 



/ 



225 

than the big stockade. Here were some old worn-out tents to 
help protect from the weather. The rations were some better 
but insufficient, received some medical treatment, but had no 
chance to wash or keep clean. 

The keeper of the prison was Capt. Henry Wirz (a native of 
Switzerland), usually called by the prisoners " the old Dutch 
captain." He was a tool and a murderer in the hands of prom- 
inent rebels, dealing out with an unsparing hand all the horrors 
of disease, pollution and death, that he possibly could, and was 
vulgar and profane in the extreme. 

A pack of blood-hounds was kept at the prison to track and 
catch escaped prisoners, and their yelping cries were often 
heard as they started on the track of the fugitives. 

March 18, 1865, came a day of deliverance to 1,000 of the 
prisoners, still leaving Y,000. He, being nearly dead, was 
allowed the choice to go or stay, decided to go. Many of his 
comrades begged of him to give them his place, saying " you 
can never live to get home." To their earnest entreaties his 
reply was, " I may not live to get home, but I wish to die as 
near home and God's country (as we called the North) as I 
can." He was about the twenty-third man of the one thou- 
sand called out. Although weak and scarcely able to stand, 
how he ever got to the station, one mile distant, God only 
knows, for at every attempt to walk he reeled and fell, but 
most of the times nearer the objective point ; so by rolling, 
crawling and dragging himself along, after six hours' struggle, 
reached the desired goal.. Started in box cars for Vicksburg, 
Miss., with plenty of hard crackers and pork, the first food of 
the kind he had seen or tasted since he was taken prisoner. 
After twelve days' travel arrived at the Big Black River twenty 
miles east of Yicksburg, where they were paroled March 30, 
1865. Never before did the flag of the stars and stripes have 
so much significance as it floated in the breeze. It was a touch- 
ing sight to see the men, with tearful eyes, gazing at that pre- 
cious emblem of freedom. Many of the men who had been 
buoyed up with hope and excitement, now found themselves 
weak and perfectly helpless.

226 

At Vicksburg they were placed on a hospital steamboat, 
reaching Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, April 8, 1865, when for 
the first time in four months, he had on a pair of shoes and a 
hat, being still weak and unable to walk or sit up. 

His father, who went to bring him home, found him in the 
hospital April 11th, and started for home on the 14th, picking 
him up and carrying him in his arms to the cars as he would a 
child, the merest skeleton of his former self, weighing only 75 
pounds, just about one-half as much as when he entered the 
service, his weight then being 147. 

He was covered with scurvey sores, some so large as the 
palm of the hand, and hip bones badly protuberant. Arrived 
at home April 15th, the day the news of President Lincoln's 
assassination was received. Was confined to his bed several 
weeks, and the cough he had contracted hung around him for 
fifteen months. His hair fell out, and his skin, which was of a 
yellow clay color, did not appear healthy for a long time ; 
could not partake of food with salt in it, or highly seasoned, 
for over two months, and was unable to do manual labor of any 
kind for over a year. 

He received his discharge June 5, 1865, at Chicago, 111., and 
also a notice from the War Department, dated June 20th, 
that he was duly exchanged. 

In the spring of 1872, he settled in Osage, Mitchell Co., 
Iowa, where he now resides (1876) engaged in farming.

George Welles, with three brothers and one sister, were left 
without a father's guidance by an accident which happened to 
their parent, in throwing an axe, at a trial of strength, with 
some of his friends, he burst a blood vessel and died while yet 
a young man. He went through his collegiate course at a time 
when it took the price of an acre of land to buy a pair of shoes. 
Several years of his life he spent at the South, part of the time 
in a business connection with Richard Caton, son-in-law of 
Charles Carroll, of CarroUton. 

In August, 1798, he brought his family from Connecticut to 
Athens, Pa., which was one of the oldest towns on the Susque- 
hanna, where he lived until his death. 

Quite an interesting scrap of family history is connected 
with George Welles' grandmother, which is well worth preserv- 
ing. She was Jerusha Pitkin, who was an English lady, who 
came to this country, either with or to visit her brother. Gov. 
Pitkin, but with the intention of returning to that country. 
The story is that the gentlemen of Hartford were unwilling 
to lose so excellent a lady from the colony, and held a meet- 
ing to devise some way of keeping her, two of them pro- 
posed for her hand, Mr. Edwards and Mr. Woodbridge, she 
accepted the former, was married to him; he died not long 
after, leaving her with a young daughter. This daughter, 
Jerusha Edwards, became the wife of John Welles, father of 
George Welles, above-mentioned. The widow Jerusha (Pit- 
kin) Edwards, was subsequently married to the Mr. Wood- 
bridge, whom she had earlier refused in behalf of his rival. 
She was the ancestress of all the Woodbridges so plentiful 
about us. She was the mother of Rev. Wm. Woodbridge, the 
geographer, and the grandmother of Wm. Charming Wood- 
bridge, who, about fifty years ago, was the editor of a scientific 
magazine, and was considered, at the time, one of the most 
enlightened men in America. This grandmother Woodbridge, 
as she was always called, has been ever held in profound 
veneration by her descendants. Mrs. Mary H. Welles Pum- 
pelly, one of her descendants, has kindly furnished this piece 
of family history, which is undoubtedly authentic.

and daughter reside in Hartford, Ct. 

The following tribute to his memory was written by his life 
long friend, Mrs. L. II. Sigoumey : 

Fair was the mansion where he lay, 

Enwrapped in snowy flowers, 
The last fond offering love could shed, 
Before the tomb embraced its dead 

Within her darkened bowers. 

They '11 miss him 'neath the hallo w'd dome 

Upon the Sabbath day ; 
They '11 miss him in the thronging mart. 
Where with pure mind, and upright heart 

He held his quiet way. 

And those who trace the record through, 

Of all his earthly time, 
Remember naught of wrong or blame, 
Or folly that might cloud his name, 

Even in his boyhood's prime. 

Amid the circle where his soul 

Its home and solace made. 
Intensely is his absence wept, 
And sacredly his image kept 

From morn till midnight shade. 



265 

For there with ever gentle hand, 
Aflfection's links he wove, ^^ 

And works of taste around him drew, 

And friendship of the chosen few, 
And plants that bloom above. 

Then to the Saviour whom he loved. 

With perfect trust he went ; 
And praise should on Heaven's altar glow 
When life, through every risk below. 

Fulfills its great intent.

Charles Gratiot Talcott died in Washington, D. C, Sept. 
15, 1867. He was a Civil Engineer by profession, and was 
engaged on several important public works, among which were 
the enlargement of the Erie canal, in the State of New York; 
the Washington, D. C, water-works, and the Imperial Mexi- 
can Railway, in Mexico. Of his son, Chables G., the Wash- 
ington Daily Critic, of the 22d Sept., 1875, says : 

"Among the successful competitors in the late examination, 
at Annapolis, were Mr. Yamell, the son of Prof. Yamell, of 
the Observatory, and Mr. Charlie Talcott, whose mother is 
so well remembered in Georgetown, as the pretty and brilliant 
Miss Theo. Barnard. The latter is the youngest cadet engi- 



267 

neer ever admitted, having attained his 16th year but a few 
days ago. His success was further creditable, as he has had 
the advantage of American schools only within the past few 
years, having lived in Meidco, where his father occupied a high 
official position. His uncle and aunt were members of the 
royal household, and his family honored guests always at the 
court of the Emperor Maximilian and Carlotta. When the 
French army marched out of the country, leaving the Emperor 
to his death, Mrs. Talcott and her children were sent by her 
husband away from the dangers of the capital city, the com- 
manding officer providing her with an escort which conducted 
them to a place of safety. Shortly after this Mr. Talcott died, 
and his widow came here five years ago with her five children, 
bereft alike of her protector and her fortune, and obtained an 
office, battling bravely with the world, as only mothers can, 
for those dependent on her. We congratulate her on the suc- 
cess of hfer son, who passed No. 18 in a class of 140 com- 
petitors.

The Pedigree of the Talcott family is now finished, as 
far as the compiler can carry it, and he leaves it for some 
enthusiastic genealogist of a future generation of Talcotts to 
continue, if he feels disposed so to do. As it has lately been 
ascertained that the name of the father of '' John of Colches- 
ter," was "John of Warwickshire, Eng," perhaps it may be 
possible to take the family name a few generations further 
back. 

There are many discrepancies in dates and spelling of names 
caused by the difference of registration of the same parties and 
events by the various members of the same branch of the 
family. The compiler has taken every possible precaution to 
avoid these errors and has spent much time in correspondence 
upon this subject, but still some exist, and each family in which 
they occur, will have to correct the text to correspond with 
their own record, if they believe that to be correct. 

The orthography of the cliristian names, taken from the old 
records, has not been changed, but copied as they were there 
found. Those furnished by the various members of the family 
have been printed as they were spelled by those who sent their 
records, under the belief that they best knew how to spell their 
own and their relatives' names.
